Buddhism and all other major religions teach that our lives are meaningful when we act with the motivation to develop loving kindness, generosity, and other positive qualities for the benefit of all sentient beings. Universal compassion brings the practice of cherishing others into the broader context of service. Ven. Robina discusses Prison Liberation Project and other examples of how service to others can enable us to relieve suffering and generate peace and love within our interdependent world.
